The Brunswick West House is a Californian bungalow was created by Taylor Knights, who did a small renovation and modern addition that reestablished a connection between the home and the garden.
Instead of reconfiguring the original home at a high cost, they created a new entryway from an ivy-lined pathway. This plan separated the home into two halves with the original part being used as the private area, while the new addition hosts the public activities. Let’s take a look at the addition interiors.
The addition features three brick walls painted white that are paired with dark stained wooden ceilings for a modern yet cozy contrast. Little nooks were formed offering places to sit and relax or spend time with family. Eaves were built to help block the summer sun while allowing the light to pass through during the winter months. The kitchen combines black lower cabinets with natural wood faced cabinets above, that are kept well-lit from a skylight. The furniture is modern and bold, it perfectly fits the spaces and makes them relaxing. What I also like very much is large windows, a triangle-shaped one and a glass door that helps owners reach outdoors from the kitchen or dining space. These windows fill the spaces with natural light and make them welcoming.
Outdoors you may see a small terrace with a couple of chairs and a cool lawn, which invites for lazing in the sun.
